    Ctrl + Alt +Delete

    When you Ctrl + Alt +Delete a process, does windows try to send it any messages? Or does it simply terminate the process?

    Not sure, but I think it simply terminates it.....if the process is not accepting messages, then trying to close it with WM_QUIT etc ist going to do much

    The system has undocumented function for the destruction of kernel objects (process objects,thread objects) and the freeing of system resources.....

    What are you trying to do?

    I was going to use SystemParametersInfo to adjust the mouse buttons. But, I wanted to switch it back at the end of the program. Hence, I was wondering what would happen if someone ctrl+alt+deleted out of my program, whether a message would be sent where I could fix the mouse buttons.
